HELP FOR CATS (AND ALL OTHER ANIMALS) IN MYANMAR

Last week, as I’m sure you know, a cyclone devastated Myanmar and left thousands (people and animals) dead, injured, and/or in dire need of assistance. In situations like this, most international rescue organizations focus on the human aspects of the suffering, but fortunately, there are other organizations devoted solely to helping animals that are facing illness, starvation and death. Needless to say, major disasters such as the Myanmar cyclone (and the earthquake in China) put a tremendous drain on the resources of animal rights and rescue organizations, so if you can, you might want to consider a donation to one or more of them.

Here are links to three organizations that are directly involved in easing the suffering of our animal friends in Myanmar:

World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)

International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)

Thank you for bringing those organizations to our attention!

On a similar note, cats are being killed inhumanely for the Beijing Olympics! You can visit this link to sign a petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/stop-the-beijing-olympics-cat-massacre
(thanks to badkittycats.com for bringing this to my attention)

Hi Quasi,

Sorry we didn't get back to you sooner, things have been really crazy with so many sick little ones around here. We appreciate very much all that you are doing to help Moki. Donating an autographed copy of your books to a future auction would be awesome!
